Terroryaki! Jennifer K. Chung

new release

A raucously funny Asian American novel that won the most recent International 3-Day Novel Contest.

Meanwhile, Sam’s food-obsessed sister, Daisy, is on the hunt for a mysterious take-out truck whose dishes are to die for. Terroryaki! is a tale of love, family, redemption and the best—if slightly cursed—dish of chicken teriyaki to be found in this realm of existence. The International 3-Day Novel Contest is a notorious rite of passage for writers that has taken place every Labour Day Weekend since 1977. The 34th annual contest will take place September 3–5, 2011; for more information, contact 3daynovel.com. Jennifer K. Chung is a Taiwanese-American software engineer, writer, and pianist.

A new edition of the late Jon Furberg’s retelling of the Anglo-Saxon poem “The Wanderer.”

ANHAGA Jon Furberg At the time of his death in 1992 Jon Furberg was one of the most disciplined and exciting poets writing in Vancouver. Ten years in the making, Anhaga was Furberg’s masterly, crafted retelling of the Anglo-Saxon poem “The Wanderer.” Reading into the old text with courage and imagination, letting individual lines and words resonate and build associations, listening for the cadences of the ancient bards who were the original carriers of the poem, he allows a new work to emerge. The result is a contemporary Wanderer—that lost, doomed, desperate soul who is perhaps the first truly individualized—that is, alienated—figure in English literature. Furberg was a poet of spectacular skill, a poet who could embrace ancient texts and reinvent them with creative vigour while remaining true to their original voice. First published in 1983, this new edition features an introduction by Brad Cran, Vancouver’s current Poet Laureate, and a foreword by Stephen Osborne, editor-in-chief of Geist magazine. Jon Furberg’s passion for literature touched the world of publishing, teaching and, of course, poetry. He was a co-founder of Pulp Press (later to reborn as Arsenal Pulp Press), a beloved teacher, and the author of three books of poetry. Jon Furberg died in 1992.
